Godspeed: Hitchhiking Home

Laurel Lee, Author HarperCollins Publishers $15.95 (251p) ISBN 978-0-06-065223-4
Lee was 20, and a year short of graduating with the class of 1967 at the University of California at Berkeley, when she ``made a choice for the wider classroom this year.'' Hitchhiking up the Pacific coast in search of enlightenment and spiritual fulfillment, she teams up with Richard, another ``flower child.'' As newlyweds they embark on an idealistic venture aimed at home steading in Alaska. Based on journal entries made at the time, this account of their emergence from counterculture adolescence and drug-induced euphoria follows the wandering couple on a route that leads to home and total commitment to Christianity. Their pas sage from moral confusion to anchoring faith is recounted with the inspirational verve that made bestsellers of Lee's Walking Through the Fire and Mourning into Dancing. Illustrated by the author. Major ad/promo. (Dec.)
